Many of us are self-proclaimed control freaks. We like for things to be within our grasp and we want to do what we want, when we want.
However, the truth is that we don’t have any ultimate control. There will come a point when bad things happen and nothing we do about them can make a difference.
This is where surrender comes in.
Kute Blackson had to come to grips with his lack of control when his mom was diagnosed with cancer. After doing everything he could to help her heal for months, he eventually realized all there was left to do was surrender.
As a result, he wrote his book The Magic of Surrender.
That is what we are discussing today. I brought Kute onto the show to talk all about his personal journey towards surrender and why this is such an important topic in our world.
